Hey,

We have started to move the streetcar models to the site. The first two (the smaller ones) will be there inside the new building. The other two larger ones won't be inside until probably later in the month or early October. But its a start.

This is part of the Threshing weekend hosted by The Saanich Historical Artifacts Society in Central Saanich. Its this weekend, both days I think from 9am to 4pm.

I will be there on Saturday from about 1pm to 4pm helping to man the family display.

Hope to see you there.

Here is the link to the society-

I've been trying to check this out for years but it's always closed or the trains aren't running.  Hopefully now I can figure it out.
